The purple-colored coverlet is fluid proof, cleanable and flame resistant. It is highly vapor permeable (4500 grams/meter2/24 hours) and fluid-proof. Both of its fabrics (smooth top fabric and the crush-proof air diffusion matrix fabric) are bacteriostatic and maintain a pathway for air flow, even under patient weight. Coverlet can be routinely wiped clean and disinfected in place, or can be removed and machine laundered according to owner’s manual.
Inner Air-Delivery Cover
The greenish gray, multi-layered cover supplies air to the microenvironment between the cover and coverlet while serving as a barrier to protect the inside of the mattress from both fluids and vapors, Unlike the purple removable coverlet, it is intended to remain on the mattress at all times.
The inflation system consists of four air cylinders that run lengthwise underneath the body. Unlike standard low air loss systems, the Easy Air does not lose air from the inflation system for "low air loss", and can be programmed to perform either “flotation” or "alternating pressure."
Foam Shell – Geo-Matt topper
The exclusive Geo-Matt® style foam topper is a high density, medical grade foam. The unique geometric design consists of over 800 individual cells, each of which acts individually to customize patient comfort, support, and pressure reduction and redistribution. This foam topper is 2" in height and includes the unique Heel Slope™ feature, designed to further reduce pressure for the sensitive heel area.
Safety Edge™ Bolsters
The Safety Edge™ consists of a firm 2-part foam bolster whose inner edge contours under pressure to direct the patient towards the center of the mattress. This adds to patient stability in sitting and lying down, and helps prevent falls and entrapment between the siderail and the mattress.
The quiet, energy efficient control unit houses both a high volume air blower and a lower volume air pump. The blower component provides air for the low air loss function through the cover/coverlet, while the pump component provides air to the air-cylinder inflation system. The filters on the control unit need to be cleaned regularly.
• Clinicians choose low air loss systems to address maceration, the weakening of the skin due to excess moisture. This mattress is independently documented to outperform every leading low air loss system in this key performance area. Remarkably, it does so with none of the compromises low air loss users have come to accept, thanks to its exclusive Air Diffusion Matrix technology and PressureGuard air/foam design. It will not lose inflation in a power outage. It's stable surface won't "swallow up" the user. And it's Safety Edge™ won't collapse like air-only mattresses can, making transfers safer.
• Control unit sets the comfort level. "On/off" buttons control air flow and alternating pressure feature.
• This mattress is recognized for reimbursement under Medicare Code: E0277
• Cover able to regulate body temperature through moisture evaporation.
